The Only True Reason We Went To War
Vice President Dick Cheney's energy task force appeared to have some interest in early 2001 in Iraq's oil industry, including which foreign companies were pursuing business there, according to documents released Friday by a private watchdog group.
Well, we knew this already, but it's at least on paper
What we have yet to know is whether three planes were allowed to kill thousands of U.S. citizens as part of a long-term strategy to prepare us to fight a war on Iraq. The fact that 9/11 was the only truly convincing justification--even though it had nothing at all to do with Iraq--makes one wonder. One also wonders where Bush's presidency would have been without 9/11 at this point, or even where it would have been in fall of 2001.

More blood for oil! The sand hasn't soaked up enough yet!
How many lives of American soldiers will have to be wasted so Cheney's friends can save some money on crude oil? As many as they can throw at the problem. Lives are cheap. Oil isn't.
"Bring 'em on?" No no no. Bring 'em home.
